We will drive out Highway 25 towards The Pinnacles and then onto Highway 198 through Coalinga. We will continue on Highway 198 to Visalia where we will stop at The Habit Burger Grill 604 S. Mooney Blvd, 93277, for a quick lunch.

We will hop back onto Highway 198 and drive towards Sequoia National Park through some simple highway into the mountains onto fun mountain roads. We will stop at Reimer's Candies/Gifts/Ice Cream, 42375 Sierra Drive, Three Rivers, CA. 93271, for a shopping and sweet/coffee break. Parking is limited there so we will need to park on the street. Have cash for ice cream!!

We will then head into Sequoia National Park from there - there is a $35 fee PER VEHICLE or don't forget your PARK PASS, to enter the park. Recommend you have cash. If needed inside the park we can stop at Hospital Rock for a bio break then we will climb to about 6,000-foot elevation to drive through the park's Tunnel Log. Photo opportunities available. The official run ends there.
